“Now You See Me” Movie Review

\ \ \

“Now You See Me” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A messy magic act dominated by Eisenberg who once again shows off his amazing skill at memorizing long monologues. Jesse Eisenberg as J. Daniel Atlas dominates his co-stars by hogging all the psychic air out of scenes. While I didn’t expect to see Isla Fisher as Henley […]

“The Hangover Part III” Movie Review

“The Hangover Part III” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Stale. Rated “R” for what? Doesn’t just end the franchise, PART lll murders it. I laughed once. Our favorite R-rated, shockingly vulgar “Wolf Pack” is now domesticated. No more drugs, black-outs, sex with Hunts Point hookers, or Thai ladyboys. The funniest moments are when Alan (Zach Galifianakis) […]

“The Great Gatsby” Movie Review

“The Great Gatsby” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer  Maguire open-mouth stupefaction dominates, Mulligan is miscast, and DiCaprio does his best to save his dignity. The Great Gatsby – written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1921 – is one of America’s great novels. Oh really? First and foremost, the narrator, Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire)*, dominates the […]

“Iron Man 3” Movie Review

“Iron Man 3” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Stupid and messy. The Most Beautiful Woman in the World has to go. Pepper must take “Happy” with her. You cannot put a movie star in a mask. We all know that a legion of stunt men wearing tights are leaping around tall buildings. You cannot put […]

“Pain & Gain” Review

“Pain & Gain” Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Michael Bay delivers a terrific, violent, funny heist movie. Wahlberg once again throws himself into the role without movie star ego. He’s fabulous – as it seems – always. I learned a lot about bodybuilders. No hackneyed robots! “PAIN & GAIN” is based on a true story […]

“K-11” Movie Review

“K-11” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander Las Vegas Informer Who knew there was a special K-11 inmate division for LGBT criminals to run the dormitory, take drugs, dress up and have sex with the guards? What is not to love here? It’s about she-men in jail ruled over by Mousey, played to the hilt by the insanely charismatic […]

“Trance” Movie Review

“Trance” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Convoluted and deliciously twisty but worth even a second viewing. I’ve been placed under hypnosis and it’s not like this at all. Why isn’t Vincent Cassel a huge star in the U.S.? Simon (James McAvoy) is a fashionable star fine art auctioneer. He explains the high-tech security […]

“ADMISSION” Movie Review

\ \ \ \ \

“ADMISSION” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer  Tina Fey’s first big blunder. Cavalier and flippant regarding serious issues. Sloppy directing, terrible acting. Where is Helen Hunt when you need her? Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) has some mommy-daddy issues. Her feminist mother Susannah (Lily Tomlin), sporting a Bella Abzug tattoo, proudly keeps reminding her Princeton […]

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

By Sean Molloy, contributing writer Informer Media Group After seeing this very predictable comedy one thing is clear, Steve Carell needs to stop being the top billed actors in movies. Carell works best in a solid ensemble comedy. Anchorman, Crazy Stupid Love, and the 40 Year Old Virgin work because there is such a strong […]

“The Call” Movie Review

“The Call” Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Thrilling, then it goes Hollywood stupid and then the best ending ever! Berry’s hair co-stars and chews the scenery. Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) is a 911 operator in L.A. This 911 center is called “The Hive” and the degree of technological skill displayed is reassuring. Let’s hope […]
